best ancient city we have visited in China, one or two tourists shops but most of the old city is still working as normal. You don’t feel like a tourist and they have great wine and coffee
Songpan ancient city was built in Ming Dynasty, the wall is exceptionally strong, is China's first ancient wall site. The gate-based stone carved with various ingenious relief, antique, and so far has retained the ancient charm.
Songpan ancient city, ancient Songzhou, is a historical famous border town, known as the west gate of Sichuan, ancient for the use of the land. The ancient city divided into two cities, the size of the grand, the momentum is extraordinary, its wall length, height, thickness, relief stone carving exquisite in the national area second to none.
I’ve been to many ancient cities. This one wasn’t very nice, very skippable. Hygiene of most restaurants was very low.
